At the Foot of Knocklayde
(Shorts)

At The Foot of Knocklayde is a series of four short films focusing on authentic Ulster-Scots speakers from North Antrim. With the backdrop of the beautiful rural scenery of the Knocklayde mountain, each film shows a slice of rural life such as horse ploughing, sheep farming and how an Armoy summer scheme is helping preserve Ulster-Scots history, traditions and language for local children to enjoy.
